Become a Campus Ambassador

Gain valuable work experience while empowering your peers to live healthfully.

Passionate about your health and driven to give fellow students a fun way to learn what they can do to feel more in control, and less in fear, of cancer? The Campus Ambassador program is for you.

What is a Campus Ambassador?

Campus Ambassadors are the on-campus representatives of the Rivkin Center for Ovarian Cancer’s education program, CanCan. CanCan works to educate young women on ovarian and breast cancer, and give them the tools and resources to reduce their risks and live a healthier lifestyle.

What does a Campus Ambassador do? 

As an ambassador, you’ll identify potential groups or organizations of women who meet regularly and could benefit from an ovarian and breast health education workshop. Once identified, you’ll be in charge of planning the workshop, promoting the event to attendees or the organization’s target audience, and ensuring the event runs smoothly.

What are the benefits of becoming a Campus Ambassador? 

As a Campus Ambassador, you’ll gain valuable work experience in:

  • Community outreach and education
  • Public speaking
  • Marketing
  • Public health
  • Coordination and planning of philanthropic events, with unique opportunities to network with fellow ambassadors from other campuses
